Dock Layouts for Summer Fun!

If you've never built your own dock before, you may not know the vast amount of options you have! At One Source Docks , we build custom docks at the Lake of the Ozarks which means we can design a dock built for your lifestyle! Not sure which type of dock you're in the market for? Read on to learn more about different dock layouts! Design Your DREAM Dock  When you have One Source Services  build a new dock at the Lake of the Ozarks  for you, we can come up with a complete custom design that will match how you spend time on the lake. To come up with the perfect dock layout, we first have to discuss what activities you do on the water. For example: Do you spend a lot of time swimming? Do you want to fish off of your dock? How many watercraft do you own?  Do you plan to entertain on your dock?  Once we figure out how you will use your dock, we can start planning your dream dock that you will make so many memories on!

Rip Rap at the Lake of the Ozarks -- More Than Just Rocks!

Rip rap at the Lake of the Ozarks isn't always the most beautiful thing to look at, but it does pack a big punch for protection! Moving water at the Lake of the Ozarks can cause shoreline erosion, and if you own a home on the Lake protecting that shoreline is very important! Read on to find out why rip rap is much more than meets the eye!   Rip Rap - More Than Rocks!  When a new rip-rap installation at the Lake of the Ozarks is put in, it might not look like much but it's actually an engineered system. Rocks aren't simply dumped on the shoreline. Rip rap material is strategically placed along the shoreline to create a system that offers lasting and strong protection against erosion. Each stone is placed to interlock naturally to create a structure.  The Lake of the Ozarks relies on these structures to protect against a major force - moving water! If you live at the Lake of the Ozarks or enjoy spending time on the water, you've witnessed first hand how much
